Another great Jo Nesbo novel. Much more descriptive and graphic than any of the others I have read. A good murder mystery!

A bit confusing (as usual for Nesbo) but it does finally have some happy endings for Harry Hole but leaves a few dangling threads for the next Hole novel.

I started reading Jo Nesbo's The Snowman and had to immediately get another book featuring Harry Hole. I picked up the police and just had to keep reading and reading - I really am a fan, the only downside is that since the characters are in Oslo the names are somewhat difficult to keep track of and I find myself going back to find out just 'who' is who! Not a deterrent however, I kept reading nonstop and enjoyed Police every bit as much as I enjoyed The Snowman. Definitely a new favorite author for me.

Unnecessarily violent. Was there even a point? I quit half way through. Who needs to read about such pointless brutality? Yuk! The only good book he wrote was the Headhunter - that had a good story. This is drivel full of horrible violence and not much of a story line.

This book got more gruesome the more I read. I couldn't finish it, nor will I ever read another of his books.

I was enjoying this book until I noticed an OPL patron had taken a pen and made "corrections". A lot of the "corrections" are wrong. The publisher of this book is Random house. Random House is not going to release a book without having it proofread any number of times. This book was translated from Norwegian to English. Any number of the phrases in this book are more British than North American. Please stop defacing library books with your pen, and lack of knowledge.

Right to the end to find out who done it!

I couldn't get interested at first, and then I realized that Nesbo was trying to write a whole book without Harry in it. When that didn't work, he brought him in on page 143, and the story started to get very interesting.

Great story, well told, plenty of mis-leading pathways for the reader and the participants.. He knows how to generate interest as he builds tension. No one is perfect, a nice piece of reality.
